Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Washer Leak Hi I didn't do anything to the washer. I was just putting in a new shutoff valve in the basement and when I turned the water back on it started dripping then. We live in the country and have a lot of iron in our water so is there a valve that may have gotten som particles under it that won't close all the way now. I know when we turned the water back on all kinds of garbage got flushed through the pipes. Thanks

LG front loader WD14071SD6 won't fill and run on cold wash. Works fine on hot. Thanks


The main causes your washing machine is not filling with water MAY BE:

1. One of the water valves (hot or cold) supplying the washer with water has been turned off or closed.
2. Your washer has a shutoff valve on the back that may be in the closed position
.
3. There may be a water filter on your washer that is clogged and tells the washer computer (control board) to not allow water to enter.
4. A hose or water connector on the back or inside the washer is defective or clogged.

My washing machine mentioned above wont drain the water or preform the spin cycle process once it gets to the usual 7 minute mark. No leakage, just not drain or spin. How can I fix it?


WASHER WILL NOT RINSE:
If your washer doesn't go through the washer rinse cycle, the most likely cause is the water valve. What happens is the water valve will stop letting cold water into the washer; therefore, once the washer gets to rinse it will either stop or not do anything during the whole rinse cycle.
This is because when you selected your water temperature, you selected warm/cold or hot/cold. The hot water came in and you didn't notice any problems. When it got to rinse, the cold water the cold water won't come in. Therefore, the washer does nothing.
To check the water valve, first cut the water off and remove the hoses off the back of the washer. Then one at a time point the hoses inside the washer tub and turn the water back on. If you don't have good water pressure, turn the water back off and remove the strainer that should be in one end of the hose. Inspect the strainer to see if it is stopped up, clean it and reinstall it. Now repeat this test. If you have good water pressure now, reinstall hose and your problem is fixed.
If you still don't have good water pressure, the problem is in your house plumbing and you need to call a plumber. If you had good water pressure the first time you performed the test, the water valve is bad and needs replacing.
TIMER
If your washer doesn't go through the washer rinse cycle the timer may be the problem. Sometimes the timer gets stuck in the middle of the cycle or won't turn at all. If the washer runs, but the timer doesn't turn, the timer is bad and needs replacing.
Do you have anti-flood hoses leading to the machine. If you do there is probably a loose tube in the back causing a small leak. When the hoses detect that water is still flowing after a certain amount of time due to the leak it shuts down and causes the machine to turn off during the rinse/spin cycle

How to change the water inlet valve?


Disconnect the electicity. Shutoff your water shutoff valves. Disconnect the two hoses leading to the valve noting which hose is hot and which is cold. Unscrew the access plate. Unscrew the screw holding the valve in place. Lift it slightly so you can push it out. Make note of the electric connections to the two solenoids. Disconnect them. Disconnect the hose ring with hose ring pliers if you are lucky enough to have them or use pliers and good luck. It your push it down below the hose it is easier to get the hose off. Wiggle the hose carefully so you don't break it. I found it useful to put the valve back in the resting place of the metal frame to be able to get a better grasp on it. Take the new part and instead of reinstalling the hose with the old hose ring get an automotive hose ring that you can screw on with a socket wrench. Reconnect all the electric connections. Put the valve back in the metal frame and screw it in and the metal plate. Reconnect the hoses securely and slowly turn the water back on making sure it doesn't leak. Plug back in and you should be in business.

Leaking water heater, the spout on the side is dripping water all over the basement floor.


You can try fixing this problem by putting a garden hose cap over end of valve.
Cap has a washer.
If leak is bad, you need to replace drain valve.

If the valve is brass, then drain water heater and put a wrench on valve and unscrew.
Buy replacement brass valve from plumbing supply or Lowes-HomeDepot

If the valve is plastic, then expect it to break off when trying to remove.
If it breaks off, then you can carefully drill out the stem, and then burn it out with a torch and use a 3/4" pipe nipple to try to cut a new thread.

If water heater will not drain ... put washing machine hose on water heater valve - run water hose between washing machine hose and outdoor spigot and turn on water for 10 seconds to break open clog inside water heater.

You're not done yet. The washer pump probably is leaking. Lots of basements being pumped out in this area as a result of the snow.

Leak well after completion of wash cycle - Neptune Front Loader


peace,
ngafm1 at your service,

Water sprayed out of ( the leaky washers in the hot water shut off valve which need to be replaced.
They are inside all valves and wear out in time from normal use!
Or you can have a bad solder joint at the junction between the hot water shut off valve or the the pipe joint!
these washers in any shutoff valve can leak intermittently till they get worse and then leak all the time!
you should be able to stand there and watch it as you open and close the shut off valve again and again , and then stay there and watch it start leaking!
Or when you are opening it and closing the valve 4 times straight you may feel a trickle of water from the valve stem!!!!
This means washers in the valve stem need to be replaced!!!
Get a new plumber !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm no plumber but I do under stand this!
